Jeweler Tresor Paris has launched a set of dazzling hand-crafted Christmas crackers featuring diamonds, possibly the world’s first such holiday novelty. This is perfect if you happen to want to spend more than US$1 million on crackers. To be clear, these are not the sort of crackers you want to engage in the usual tug-of-war shenanigans with.

Almost £1 million worth of gems have been incorporated into the six different designs, with Tresor offering the recipients the chance to have the diamonds set into a piece of jewelry of their choice.

The most valuable gem in the set is a 3-carat pear cut diamond valued at £247,000 (approximately US$372,700), and the least valuable is a 3-carat oval worth £113,000 (US$170,507).

The crackers are designed and hand-made by the long established House of Crackers who especially selected exotic paper sourced from India, super sheer ribbon from Cheshire, poinsettia flowers, and goose feathers for these extremely elegant creations.

The crackers are available from VeryFirstTo.com, priced at £995,000 (US$1,514,000).
